Soil moisture levels in West Central Saskatchewan were looking OK despite the recent heat surge throughout the area. Area's west of Kindersley got a bit of moisture recently to top up it's moisture levels, while area's east of Kindersley were still looking for that all important rain, although levels were still holding OK.

Some Canola growers specifically in the Rosetown, Elrose and Kyle areas have some concerns with seeding into moisture at a 1 inch depth and hoping for rain.

Seeding has started but not every grower has begun seeding early this year. John Ippolito thinks most growers will start seeding sometime within the next week if they haven't started already.
